Learn about the characters and their descriptions below:

Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi (previously announced) as Jabari

A charming, creative visionary with a splash of goofball, Jabari is effortlessly cool. Dressed head-to-toe in the holiest of streetwear grails, Jabari is just one of those kids you can’t help but love. At a first time crossroads of career success and the perfect apartment, he is about to find the final piece of adulthood: true love.

Jessica Williams as Meadow:

An on-the-rise photographer who is Jabari’s new neighbor, Meadow is not only the coolest girl at the party, she’s the realest.

Timothée Chalamet as Jimmy

Jimmy is Jabari’s best friend and… weed dealer, though with the new drug laws he’s now focusing on crypto and new inventions. An oxymoronic, laid back conspiracy theorist, Jimmy is never without a blunt and a book.

Ty Dolla $ign as Ky

Jabari’s irreverent, and at times, inappropriate road dog. Ky is always there for Jabari, even though his support can sometimes come in interesting packages.

Laura Harrier as Carmen

Jabari’s recent ex-girlfriend. Stylish and confident, Carmen is the girl you’re supposed to marry.

Vanessa Hudgens as Karin

Meadow’s best friend who is trustworthy, grounded and adorably pregnant.

Christopher Abbott as Reed

A well-dressed shark with a heart and art dealer representing Meadow’s photography. Reed has the kind of chin that is sharp enough to cut glass but not strong enough to take a punch.

070 Shake as Nadia

Meadow’s associate from the art scene. Born and raised in New York City, Nadia is an in-your-face sculptor whose voice could only be drowned out by the brashness of her own work.

Jaden Smith as Jordan

An adolescent BMX superstar, Jordan’s talent earns a pass to kick it with Jabari and Jimmy. Jordan sees the dating landscape in New York City just a bit different than Jabari.

Keith David as Mr. Rager:

Jabari’s superhero creation.

Teyana Taylor as Boxing Coach:

Meadow and Karina’s hard-nose boxing instructor at Rumble NYC.

Arturo Castro as Len

An upwardly mobile professional, Len is Jabrari’s co-worker at Cosmic Comics. He wears hard-bottom shoes and a newsboy cap. He’s super smart AND super annoying.

Macaulay Culkin as Downtown Pat:

Macaulay Culkin as Downtown Pat: Downtown legend and life-long, city-wide delinquent. Despite his gritty exterior, Pat has a very romantic heart and wise words to give.
